Woke up lying in my tummy...

I woke up on the night lying on my tummy, I didn't feel uncomfortable but little man was kicking away. I wasn't flat on my stomach more to the right in the "recovery position" which was my normal sleeping position before pregnancy. Can this hurt him? I'm 24 weeks.

I don't think so, but not 100% sure.

He's surrounded by fluid. He'll be absolutely fine.

He'll be fine! I slept on my tummy most of the way through both pregnancies, as it was the most comfortable. Both mine are fine.
Apparently my Mum also slept on her tummy when carrying me.

Its fine. Im 25 weeks and being on my tummy is the most comfy for me so was worried and asked my GP and she said it was fine, baby is surrounded by fluid.

I've done the same and generally sleep in a 'recovery' position too. I sort of feel that the only reason I'm feeling her more when I do this is because I'm putting a wee bit pressure on my tum - I feel her more when wearing a slightly tighter pair of jeans too.

Of course not! I slept on my tummy until it became impossible to do so!

Another tummy sleeper! My husband used to wake me up when I was pregnant with first baby until he had checked it was fine!
